Shabazz Muhammad is the Morgan Wootten Player of the Year!!

    Which ever school lands Mr. Muhammad will basically be deemed (in my eyes) as lottery winners. This kid will make an impact the moment he steps on the court. He has an explosiveness to his game that hasn't been seen out  of a high school player in years.  All these attributes have led to Muhammad being selected as the McDonald's player of the year. Muhammad was one of six finalists for the Wootten award. Kyle Anderson of St. Anthony's (Jersey City, N.J.), Brandon Ashley of Findlay Prep (Henderson, Nev.), Isaiah Austin of Grace Prep (Arlington, Texas), Marcus Paige of Linn-Mar (Marion, Iowa) and Marcus Smart of Marcus (Flower Mound, Texas) were the other finalists. In my opinion, Mr. Muhammad is a one and done player if he elevates his game on the college level as he has done in high school. Schools are salivating waiting on his decision.  Be sure to catch Mr. Muhammad playing in the McDonald's All-American Game on March 28 in Chicago (ESPN, 9:30 p.m. ET).
